The DLA is a citizen group, focused on issues of interest to residents of Downtown Raleigh. The group was formed in February of 2009 by a group of residents motivated by a desire to lend their voices to shaping the growth and character of Downtown Raleigh.
Our mission is to be an organized voice for Downtown residents, working together with city agencies, concerned institutions and local businesses in supporting balanced and sustainable growth for Raleigh.
We are people who live, work or play in the Downtown area and share a passion for our city. Our intention is to play an active role in helping our Downtown neighborhoods be the most livable and attractive they can be, both for us and future residents.
Benefits of becoming a member include creating fellowship with neighbors, sustaining the organization as a force in the shaping of downtown redevelopment, and establishing the DLA presence in the broader community.
And membership is free. DLA has a monthly mixer, held at a different downtown food and drink establishment each time.
We’ll have the DLA Monthly Mixers on our Events Calendar here as well.
